Helping Our Clients Achieve Their Goals
We enjoy working with each client individually to match their treatment needs and desired changes with the method of treatment. We work with children, adolescents and adults. We specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ individuals, those living with the impact of single incident or complex PTSD, and addictions. We focus on resolving distressing and/or traumatic life experiences. These experiences often keep us stuck in behaviors that are baffling and even debilitating at times. Efforts to change often feel overwhelming and defeating. Through EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) and other focused strategies, we have assisted many clients with reprocessing the impact of ongoing or critical incident abuse, internalized homophobia, the trauma and abuse from growing up LGBTQIA+, as well as subjective forms of abuse. The goal of our therapeutic process is the implementation of new behavioral patterns and positive beliefs about one self. We believe the reprocessing of psychological distress provides individuals in depth healing and renewed emotional freedom.
We currently utilize EMDR in conjunction with other therapeutic strategies (e.g., art therapy, DBT, and MBCT) to help individuals reprocess psychological difficulties connected to addictive behaviors, traumatic life experiences, as well as grief/loss. We also utilize EMDR to assist clients in overcoming performance anxiety (e.g., athletic performance, test anxiety). In addition, we also leverage an addiction recovery model to treat eating disorders, gambling addictions, substance abuse, and other behavioral addictions.
We work with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. Our treatment specialization includes:
- Trauma Recovery
- PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)
- LGBTQIA+ Counseling
- Couples Counseling
- Family Counseling
- Parenting Support
- Attachment disorders
- Grief Counseling
- Work and Career issues
- Stress Management

Alcohol and Other Drug Assessment
QUEST is able to provide General Assessments for Alcohol and Drug use. These confidential Assessments are offered with a Substance Use Counselor. The purpose of an assessment is to assist you in your treatment goals and evaluate any concerns you may have with Alcohol or Drugs. If appropriate, the counselor may make recommendations for further treatment.
These confidential assessments are performed by a Substance Use Counselor. Our $100 fee for an assessment must be paid by the client at the time of services. Qualifying Medicaid clients may use their Medicaid insurance to cover the cost of the assessment. We accept Straight Medicaid, GHC Medicaid, and Dean Medicaid.
